Recap: Green Bay vs. Detroit

Green Bay, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Keifer Sykes scored 22 points and pulled down eight rebounds as the Green Bay Phoenix extended their win streak to 12 games with a 62-52 victory over the Detroit Titans in Horizon League action at the Resch Center.

Also scoring in double figures for the Phoenix (17-3, 7-0 HL) were Greg Mays and Carrington Love with 11 and 10 points, respectively, the former also posting a team-best 10 rebounds.

Evan Bruinsma dropped in 14 points for the Titans (9-13, 2-5), followed by Carlton Brundidge with 11 points and six rebounds off the bench. Juwan Howard Jr., the team's leading scorer heading into the meeting with 18.0 ppg, converted only 1-of-10 from the floor and finished with three points as the team bowed for the fifth time in six tries.

Both teams had a hard time finding the basket in the first half, but even while Green Bay was shooting a brutal 6-of-18 from the floor and missing all five chances behind the 3-point line, the squad was able to connect on 18- of-22 at the charity stripe in order to establish a 30-25 advantage at the break. Detroit made just 8-of-28 from the field through the first 20 minutes of action.

In the second half, again the teams had their issues, the visitors converting just 34.6 percent from the floor and Green Bay a woeful 7-of-28. However, free-throw shooting was the saving grace for the Phoenix once more as they made good on 16-of-19 to secure the win.

In addition to forcing 16 turnovers, which translated into 20 points, Green Bay also outscored the Titans at the line by a 34-14 margin.
